Hysolate, a virtual workspace innovator for security-aware enterprises, today announced that it has been named the winner of the “Endpoint Security Innovation of the Year” award in the fifth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.
As enterprises move away from network perimeters into a Zero-Trust Architecture (ZTA) in which access is granted based on device or user credentials, Hysolate’s fully managed endpoint isolation solution complements ZTA security architectures by comprehensively securing access from the endpoint, by design.
With Hysolate, access to sensitive enterprise apps on the endpoint can only be achieved from an isolated trusted environment, while access to risky or potentially malicious apps is relegated to a completely separate environment. This approach leverages the latest virtualization-based security technologies and enhances them so that enterprises can virtually split the endpoint into these two isolated environments in a way that is user-friendly, and cloud-managed.
“Most enterprise user devices run operating systems like Windows that have a huge vulnerable code base, a wide variety of legacy applications/middleware, and access to risky malicious networks or internet resources. This means that many enterprises that adopt ZTA still mistakenly trust user devices – a critical flaw as it allows attackers to breach a user’s endpoint device and then ride the authenticated user’s session to do harm,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Hysolate delivers a ‘breakthrough’ layer of defense that organizations should not go without. We extend our sincere congratulations to the entire Hysolate team on winning the 2021 ‘Endpoint Security Innovation of the Year’ award.”
The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.
“We are incredibly honored to receive this award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough,” said Marc Gaffan, CEO at Hysolate. “With more enterprises moving towards ZTA, endpoint user devices can easily get compromised by determined attackers. With Hysolate, we ensure that employees and contractors can work productively while admins have peace of mind that corporate assets are protected in a fully managed, isolated environment.”
By sitting on user endpoints, Hysolate offers a seamless user experience, even with patchy internet infrastructure. It has a native UX, making it ideal for both technical and non-technical users. Additionally, users can easily switch between environments. Hysolate is also simple to deploy and manage from the cloud, with granular policies for admins. The Hysolate workspace access can be protected by a password or a PIN, and it can be wiped remotely in case of need. Lastly, Hysolate can be integrated with SSO and SIEM, and is fully enterprise ready.
